In Loving Memory

Dear bloggers, my family is in mourning.  My dear sister passed yesterday morning.  Her body could not take the prescribed treatment and she is now in peace and free of pain.   She was the most loving person I know, and also the most amazingly kindhearted sister.  I will take a break from blogging to be with my family.  I thank you for visiting my blog. God bless.

In Memoriam

With you a part of me hath passed away;
For in the peopled forest of my mind
A tree made leafless by this wintry wind
Shall never don again its green array.
Chapel and fireside, country road and bay,
Have something of their friendliness resigned;
Another, if I would, I could not find,
And I am grown much older in a day.
But yet I treasure in my memory
Your gift of charity, and young heart's ease,
And the dear honour of your amity;
For these once mine, my life is rich with these.
And I scarce know which part may greater be,--
What I keep of you, or you rob from me.


George Santayana
